Scrappy Saturday

I started a new project inspired by Nann who blogs at With Strings Attached. She calls it "waffle stamps" and you can see her most recently finished quilt here

Here is my first test block. It is made with 1.5" squares and strips, and it's a perfect RSC project to use up these size scraps. 
It's also a great leader-ender project, so it's a win-win in my sewing room!


Here are my first 4 pink waffle blocks. It's so fun to have a new RSC project. Don't you find that new projects have more energy than old ones??
Hop over to the RSC linkup to see what the quilters are sewing with pink scraps.

This is a pretty block! Looks like a great project for RSC. Was this post entirely written with the new blogger format? Happy stitching!

I love these blocks! I already have a wonderful leader and ender quilt on the go, but maybe I can join in on RSC again after a long hiatus

Yes, a new project is definitely fun! Those are great blocks - I liked Nann's quilt, too!

I have a bunch of leftover 1-1/2 strip pieces. I think Nann has started a new trend.

Nann said...

Oooh, done in RSC colors -- terrific! (But some advance warning: this project will not eliminate ALL of your scraps. :))

I'm SEW jealous, Kathy!! I saw Nann's project, but can't justify starting a new project right now.
